birthday snack cake

Birthday Snack Cake

This is the only cake you’ll ever need for literally any occasion. I’m calling it the Birthday Snack Cake because it’s a classic white cake with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles – which is a quintessential birthday cake flavor. But, this classic cake is made a 9 x 9-inch baking […]

homemade chocolate pudding

From Scratch Chocolate Pudding

This recipe was too good not to share immediately! Usually I’m a couple months out from what I’m creating versus what I’m sharing. I have to be in order to stay on top of things! But, I recently made some French macarons for a friend, so I had quite a […]

Orange Creamsicle Popsicles

Summer is here, even if it’s technically not for another week or so. One of the things I always remember about summer as a kid was the ice cream truck. It was seriously a scramble to get to him whenever we heard the song. My house growing up had a […]

coconut chocolate chip cookies on a cookie sheet

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies with coconut were the first thing I started baking on my own, and it was the first recipe I ever created originally. I used to bake chocolate chip cookies all the time, and my dad would then ask me to make some with coconut in them. He […]

Rosemary Lemon Ginger Biscotti

I was on a ginger kick last month when I baking Kimmy’s birthday cake, the Orange Ginger Carrot Cake. And I had planned to bake biscotti as well, so I had the idea for this Rosemary Lemon Ginger Biscotti. I love lemon and rosemary together, as does pretty much everyone. […]
